Family run restaurant from Genoa Italy with a young, talented chef with new ideas incorporated into Italian food. Inanovative and delicious cuisine served by friendly, welcoming family members. Italian restaurants will seem ordinary now that we've experienced Acciuga. If you enjoy surprises and have an adventurous palate then this is the restaurant for a new experience. The three course meal was actually seven courses with all the delicious complementary extras and the homemade chocolates after our fabulous dessert were delicious. The portion sizes are very generous so you have to pace yourself. Meeting the chef and chatting with his father about their background and the inspiration behind the cuisine was interesting. Thank you to the chef's cousin, a delightful young lady who was very friendly and attentive. An evening at Acciuga, 343 Kensington High Street is delightful, we wish the restaurant every success.
A fabulous evening, the service was friendly without being overly so and the setting was perfect. Food absolutely delicious and the wine we chose was both good value and perfectly matched our supper. Highly recommend and will be going back.
We received a warm welcome and the food was delectable. The food was beautifully presented and tasted sublime - a credit to chef. The staff were courtious, professional and helpful but were also warm and welcoming making the whole experience an absolute delight. We would highly recommend this restaurant and will not hesitate to eat there again when we next visit London.
